Guest speaker Curt Rice is an American-born Norwegian linguist and the first non-Norwegian to be at the helm of an institution for higher education in Norway.
In addition to his work as Rector, he leads Norway’s Committee on Gender Balance and Diversity in Research, and was the head of the Board for Current Research Information System in Norway (CRIStin) through 2016. Curt also served until recently as a reserve member of the Board for the Language Council of Norway (Språkrådet).
In all of these roles, he has worked to pursue his conviction that research and education are essential to improving society and that making universities better therefore has the potential to make societies better.
